Summer Blog - Hot news!

It has been a hot summer, and we have some hot news at Gallery 545 as we are working to bring you more inspiring art!

We will soon be hosting our major showcase of contemporary art of Northern Ireland in the spacious galleries of the Island Arts Centre in Lisburn. We are also growing the gallery, introducing new talented artists and new interesting art forms – glass and textile. As always, we are continuing to add beautiful artworks to our collections.
